Today was the day the Pirates came to school! Year 1 children dressed as Pirates and completed pirate activities throughout the day as part of their topic learning. They looked at some famous pirates of the past, learned how to talk like a pirate, went on a trreasure hunt (having to solve rhyming clues to find the next clue), made eye patches and pirate hats, wrote messages in bottles and made pirate ships. In the afternoon we played a pirate game which showed us how physical a pirates day was! We also talked about how Pirates actions weren't always nice but we worked together as a team today like a good pirate crew would do! Many thanks to all the parents and carers for their support today with the costumes and outfits!
On Friday 13th September Year 1 went on a local walk around Ranmoor. Before we left we recieved a letter from The Jolley Rodger family of Pirates. The letter said they needed us to look out for landmarks on our walk for us to make a map of the area. They said they will use our maps (if we send them by bottle across the sea) to come and find us. On our walk we looked at different types of houses, different types of buildings and their names. We finished our walk by sitting outside St. John's Church and sketching some of the houses and buildings that we could see. Well done Year 1 for excellent behaviour and many thanks to all of our volunteers who joined us for the afternoon.
